EU emissions trading scheme should be opposed: Ajit Singh
NEW DELHI |
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Aviation Minister Ajit Singh has urged Asia Pacific regulators to oppose measures like the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, calling it "unilateral".
"We would request the delegates to oppose any unilateral environment measures imposed by a state or group like the EU ETS and work with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) to evolve global environment protection on the basis of equity and consensus," Singh told a conference of Asia Pacific aviation regulators on Monday.
India is among the countries opposed to an EU law that makes all airlines pay for carbon they emit on flights to and from Europe.
